Science Above the Fray

Eugenie Scott, the Executive Director of the National Center for Science Education, spoke on battle between evolution and intelligent design at KU last Thursday as part of the Hall Center "Difficult Dialogues" series. Most unfortunately, RSR wasn't able to attend.

According to the Lawrence Journal World, Scott told the audience that science doesn't really have a dog in that fight. Science’s only concern, she said, is with the empirical observation, testing and recording of the ways of the natural world.
If there is a fight to be waged, she said, it should be between those who believe some nonmaterial force helps shape the world — including intelligent design proponents — and those who philosophize the purity of the natural, observable world.
